Easily replaced. There were over 25,000 emt/​paramedic applications for vacancies. All willing and compliant.

113 former firefighters thought more of their personal politics than their crews, the department, and the city they served.

113 individuals that are in the wrong job you're supposed to have consideration and be concerned for the public so get vaccinated

Have enormous respect for brave firefighters but this does not show wise judgement unless they wear masks, sanitize frequently, distance from others (how would that work?). They can harm others even if they believe COVID19 cannot harm them. Hope they rethink & get vaccination.

There's a waiting list longer then that to get hired. Now they can fire people who aren't related to each other.

They made that choice so if the people of LA suffer - it’s because they were too ignorant and selfish to protect the public by getting vaccinated. Done!

I know a few people that would love the opportunity to train and become firefighters. Looks like that will be happening for them.

It's called democracy. And people who fail to recognize it will soon face Nuremburglike trials for choosing tyranny over democracy. 😉

This is so wrong! Biden said it would never be mandatory! https://t.co/​JeAPlCvpSr
